Reunions, Tour Dates — March 14, 2023 at 9:48 am

Love and Rockets to play 4 more U.S. concerts following reunion at Cruel World

Love and Rockets

Love and Rockets’ looming reunion will include more than just the band’s appearance at Cruel World in the Los Angeles area this May, as the trio today announced four more concerts in the western U.S. in the days that follow the festival appearance.

The band — Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins — will follow that May 20 slot at Cruel World with concerts in Oakland, California; Salt Lake City, Utah; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington, according to a post on the group’s Instagram. See full dates below.

Tickets are on sale now for all four shows: Oakland, Salt Lake City, Portland and Seattle.

Love and Rockets last performed live in 2008 with a couple warmup shows and a trio of festival slots, including at Coachella and Lollapalooza. The band’s last album was 1998’s Lift, and its last tour followed that in 1999.

Bauhaus began its latest reunion with a trio of shows in Hollywood in late 2019, then continued with a pandemic-delayed string of headlining dates and festival appearances, including at the inaugural Cruel World festival — which itself was delayed from 2020 to 2022.

The band even released its first new song in 14 years.

In late August last year, however, Bauhaus canceled the remainder of its reunion dates in North America as frontman Peter Murphy entered rehab ” to attend to his health and well-being,” leaving fans wondering if the rest of the band would simply continue on as Love and Rockets.

    I have purchased and been cancelled on TWICE by Bauhaus in Atlanta. It’d be nice if they expanded the tour after this run. I have not seen them since the Fabulous Fox Theater in St. Louis, Sept. 2nd, 1989 when the Pixies opened for them… Past due if you ask me.
